I'm also more into "disturbing" than "scary". I never found a single horror film scary even as a little kid. But I found many disturbing, like Alien (possibly my all-time favorite) with its underlying Giger theme of rape and human reproduction and violation of human bodies.
Same. Its hard to find a good horror movie that will actually give you scares so I just stick to ones that are disturbing
Same. I like feeling disturbed a bit. It's kind of a lingering sense that makes me question things: food for thought! I don't like the "torture porn" ones so much though like Hostel. Well, it's not that they're too disturbing for me so much as boring to me. I can't get enough into the characters and story to be disturbed in the first place. I do sorta like Martyrs though. That one is extremely violent and maybe approaching what some people might call "torture porn" but I found the acting and storytelling interesting enough to find it disturbing and not just cheesy.
This is one of the newer ones I really love for some bizarre reason. It's a really weird movie but I kept coming back to it. I've watched it three times already (though not back-to-back). It's sorta Lovecraftian although not quite:https://youtu.be/J1JdWOqc9Q8
I also love distant historical/period films and sci-fi and so when that overlaps with horror, there's a very good chance I will like it (VVitch, e. g.)
Yeah I'm not a big fan of "torture porn" scenes either. They just bore me, kinda take me out of the movie, make me lose interest. Not a huge fan of gore either but I'll watch gory horror. I'm all in for violent horror and disturbing torture scenes. And The VVitch, I love. Definitely one of my top 3

I'll never forget the ending of that movie.
@TrueConfection Yes, that is what scared the crap out of me.
I hated that one!😭😂😂
@Blackcupcake Really why?
hahah well I don’t really remember the plot thaat well, but I remember the build up being suuuper slow so it was really really boring😂😭
@Blackcupcake oh ok. I thought the buildup was going at a reasonable pace
honestly maybe it was… I watched it ages ago so I might have to rewatch it and form an upgraded opinion hahaha
